Andrew Kaufman grew up near NYC, graduated from Oberlin College, earned his MFA in poetry writing from Brooklyn College, and his MA and Ph. D. in English Literature from the University of Toronto. His poems have appeared in numerous journals, such as The Atlanta Review, Beloit PoetryJournal, College English, A Gathering of the Tribes, Massachusetts Review, Nimrod, Rattapallax, and Skidrow Penthouse. His Cinnamon Bay Sonnets won the Center for Book Arts chapbook competition. Earth’s Ends appeared in 2005 after winning the Pearl Poetry Award. His most recently-completed books of poems, Both Sides of the Niger and The Cinnamon Bay Poems, are due out, respectively, in 2013 and 2014 from Spuyten Duyvel Press and Rain Mountain Press. The travel reflected in much of his work was made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.  He has taught at a number of colleges and universities, and currently lives in New York City.
